The Secret works, if you believe and trust!
Wow! I can’t express how grateful I am to finally be able to share my story with you. I come here to read other people’s stories almost every day, and I always find comfort in them. It gives me such a wonderful feeling to hear about other people’s successes and happiness.
I first found out about The Secret a few years ago. It was a time when things didn’t go so well and I was always complaining about how hard life was with me. A friend invited me over and made me watch a copy of The Secret DVD with him. I was stunned about what I discovered about myself that day. About the power of the Law of Attraction. The power to change my circumstances and be happy. But as time passed by, I am not proud to recognize that I forgot about what The Secret taught me, and just went on living on automatic pilot.
Fast forward a few years, July 2010, after I finished my master’s degree I had to move back to my hometown and live with my parents. Things began to go downward from there. I felt so miserable. I was jobless, missed my friends, gained a little weight, and to top all that, my boyfriend broke up with me three days after I moved back home. I was devastated. Even though I missed every one of my friends, I didn’t want to talk to them. I was constantly thinking of my ex. Even though our four year relationship was on and off all the time, and didn’t bring me joy, I really couldn’t get him out of my head.
A few months passed by when I didn’t do anything but sleep, eat, and sleep again. I was even arguing with my family almost all day every day, so I began to avoid them by getting locked up in my room. I was totally lost.
One night I couldn’t sleep and I began to pray for a miracle. I then remembered about The Secret. I remembered about how good it made me feel when I watched it the first time, so I began to watch it again that same night. It struck me so hard and I was so mad at myself for not being able to see it clearly sooner. What was I doing? Crying myself to sleep won’t change anything, but make it worse. So I decided then that by Christmas I would move back, find a new job, and perhaps afterward find a new boyfriend.
So, in order to move back I needed some money. It came. I found two job opportunities in my hometown. I had both interviews on the same day. I took the one I wanted and made the work contract for two months only. It was late September. Everybody, including my boss, asked me why work for such a short period of time? They all laughed when I told them that in December I would move back to the city.
When my contract was over, in November, I still hadn’t found the opportunity to go back, but I held my faith strong. I started writing a journal, made affirmation stickers, and spread them all over my room. I even started to talk again with my friends. I had lost weight, and I started to feel really good about myself. I even started to draw again, something I didnï¿½t do for quite some time.
One day I was on The Secret website and I read a story about a woman making a list of the qualities she wanted in her perfect partner. I made one too. And it’s a pretty long list. Two days after that a guy wanted to be my friend on Facebook. I saw that he went to the same university as me, so I added him to my list. We started chatting even on messenger. He made me laugh, so I was glad I made a new friend. I told him about me searching for a job and how sure I was that I would move back to the city.
Well, let me tell you that the opportunity to go back came on December the 6th. I had a job interview and I got it. I found a great rent in two days and was back in the city on December 10th. On the same night I met the guy from Facebook. He was wonderful. He became my boyfriend. We spent Christmas together.
But I was constantly afraid of this new relationship being too good to be true, and guess what? Your wish is my command! He left me. The reason was that we were moving too fast. I thought at first that this was meant to happen, because my ex started to contact me after finding out about my new boyfriend. He told me he wanted to start over again, but I wasn’t so sure anymore I wanted that relationship again.
After a few days I found my list with the qualities I wanted in my partner, and was stunned to discover that the new guy was everything on that list. I was so upset that I screwed it up with perhaps the most wonderful person I have ever met.
I remembered The Secret again and tried to be happy with myself, not let anything get me down, and continued to have faith in the fact that my perfect guy would return. In the mean while I was concentrating on my new job, and I entered a contest that I won second place in. I bought a professional camera that I always dreamed of. I continued having fun with my friends. It wasn’t always easy, but I kept my faith.
Anyway, it took a few months but my guy came back. 🙂 I was ecstatic when he called and asked me out on a date. Our relationship is so great. He’s everything I wanted and more.
As I write all this I am constantly amazed at how great things turned out for me. I wanted to move back to the city by December and I did. I have found a great job; I have a great relationship with a great guy. I have many good friends, and I am so happy. 🙂
So thank so much Rhonda for sharing The Secret with the world. Thank you all for having the patience to read my story. I wish you all the best and always believe that the Universe will give you anything you want as long as you believe in it and don’t get lost in the negative thoughts. Believe and have faith that things will turn out great no matter what.
